This morning I had a bill from Sainsburys mobile for line rental. This is for a phone that stopped working 4 months ago. I have encounterted the 8th circle of hell trying to reach the call centre, I have sent snail mail with a copy of the engineers report, I have e mailed them. Not one reply, but they still manage to send bills out. I used to spend around 200 quid a week in Sainsburys but now it all goes to Morrisons. So they lose about 800 quid a month because of their venality and tardiness. It doesn't make economic sense to me, but what would I know?

John Otway last had a hit 25 years ago. His fans have determined that for his 50th birthday he will have another hit. He is a true maverick who has kept going year after year, I really hope he gets that hit, he deserves it.

Another link nicked from plep. This one is the website of the number 50 bus route in Birmingham, it's a real nostalgia trip for me. I was born in Balsall Heath and lived in just about every other place on there. I doubt that there is a pub in Mosely I havent been chucked out of at one time or another. Digbeth I have spent many a drunken night in and still wax nostalgic as I walk through it on the way to the Blues. Then there is the city centre, best forgotten!
